Ways to make your smartphone (and kids) smarter

Learn with Homer

The just-launched app, created by education reformer Stephanie Dua and literacy experts, is the real deal for learning to read. Thanks to beautiful graphics and an easy-to-follow program covering topics such as science, art, and history, littles will want to start reading to you at bedtime. Plus, we love the smart website feature that lets us check our kids’ progress. Thanks, Homer.

Available at itunes.com, free; additional in-app programs, start at $2.
